Preparing a manuscript for submission to a scientific journal may be hard work for many scientists. Still, scientific writing is an essential step of the research process, because the form used to present the results is often as important as the results themselves. Writing a scientific paper is a skill that can be acquired with time, while becoming easier with practice.
During the conference EGU23 held in Vienna, the Short Course “Meet the editors (1): how to write and revise your manuscript” was delivered. This short course gave early career scientists simple guidelines on writing about their work and increase the chance of publishing it.
Nadav Peleg, assistant professor at the University of Lausanne, was lecturer of this course. Dr. Peleg is an editor in the Hydrology and Earth System Sciences (HESS) journal and Journal of Hydrology.
